This week: Cookie season is nearly upon us; recipes; EYBD Previews; giveaways and more

Brian Hart Hoffman recently shared his schedule at Williams-Sonoma for this autumn which we have added to our Calendar. He has planned a number of special guests with loads of baked goodness planned. We have also added book tours for the following authors: Deb Perelman for Smitten Kitchen Keepers; Michael Twitty for KosherSoul; and Laurel Kratochvila for New European Baking as well as updated the cooking schools and bookstore events on our Calendar.

We are a week into September and the beginning of baking season will be here before we can preheat our ovens. For this year’s cookie baking you might wish to take a look at the following new books (and magazine):

For other baking inspiration be sure to check out my 2022 baking preview especially these titles: Tava: Eastern European Baking and Desserts From Romania & Beyond by Irina Georgescu and Laurel’s New European Baking. There is an embarrassment of baking wealth and knowledge headed our way including books from Claudia Fleming and Erin Jeanne McDowell!

Lastly, I came across a book to be published next month in the UK: Knead Peace: Bake for Ukraine: Recipes from the world’s best bakers in support of Ukraine edited by Andrew Green. Knead Peace features a collection of recipes from bakers around the world (including Anna Makievska of The Bakehouse (Kyiv), Helen Goh, Yotam Ottolenghi, Richard Bertinet and many more). Proceeds will benefit Ukraine. The title will be released in the US in May of 2023.
